Brunch + sunshine = brunchshine.
What a whopper f*cking day it is out there.
According to Met Éireann it’s gonna be “dry today with long spells of bright sunshine”.
We’ve rounded up 10 tasty places you can enjoy brunch under the sun in the great outdoors today. Enjoy.
1. Brioche — Ranelagh
Fight off your neighbours for an outside table and you will be well-rewarded.
Forever an exciting dining experience with sensational grub.
2. Bread & Butter — Drumcondra
One of the cutest places in all of Dublin, but often overlooked by non-locals.
Bursting with personality, and fabulous food, this boasts a really gorgeous area out front that will bring you all the happiness.
3. Two Fifty Square Coffee — Rathmines
Plenty of outdoor seating, but if you don’t managed to snag some, the inside is so bright, light and airy — you’ll have no problem enjoying the sunshine from indoors.
Excellent food, incredible coffee.
4. The Woollen Mills — Ormond Quay Lower
A classic, right on Ha’penny Bridge.
Oh, the views, from both the downstairs patio and the upstairs terrace.
Their waffles are a MUST try, both sweet and savoury.
We are HUGE Angelina’s fans.
Great food, drinks and atmosphere, but the biggest appeal has got to be their balcony terrace that sits out right on the canal.
Tables are usually snapped up very fast, so get in there early.
6. Brother Hubbard South — Harrington Street
Dublin’s love for Brother Hubbard is no secret.
And their Southside restaurant is one of our favourite people watching spots with a range of unreal dishes.
Their avo and eggs are the stuff of dreams and make for a very pretty picture, as seen below.
7. The Happy Pear — Greystones
Never has sitting alongside the main street of a large town seemed more appealing.
And with that weather today, you’ve just gotta go.
8. Drury Buildings — Drury Street
Brunch and a snapper (gin Bloody Mary) are all we need on this fine day.
Their sunny terrace is quite possibly the best place to spend a sunny day in all of the city centre, and their brunch deals are phenom.
9. Farmer Browns — Rathmines
It’s not that there’s anything wrong with the Bath Avenue joint — but it’s north-facing, and you can sit in the shade any damn weekend.
The Rathmines restaurant has even more space out front, and it’s west-facing, meaning you’ll get ample sunshine from around 1pm onwards.
And the food? Well, we’ll let this pic do the talking…
10. Bay — Clontarf
Situated right on Clontarf’s seafront, Bay serve a delightful brunch.
Smoothies, pancakes, eggs, bacon – it’s a dream.
Burn the post-brunch calories with a walk on the prom afterwards.
Enjoy that sunshine while it lasts folks, and say a prayer for those of us stuck in work.
